Saturday, 2:00pm2:30pm, Diamond Stage

Formed in 1990, Sawagi Taiko is the first all Asian women’s taiko group in Canada.  They are a multi-generational group of women of East Asian and Indigenous heritage, brought together by our shared passion for Japanese drumming. “Sawagi” means to “cause a commotion” in Japanese. With thunderous drum beats, stirring vocals, & martial-arts inspired choreography, they share the empowerment and exhilaration we feel through taiko with their diverse audiences. They harness the power of the drum to support feminist & social justice ideals. Their spirit, creativity and mutual respect can be felt both on & off the stage. 

土曜、午後22、ダイヤモンド・ステージ  

さわぎ太鼓は1990年に結成された、カナダ初、メンバー全員が女性の太鼓グループです。東アジアとファーストネイションのバックグランドを持つ多世代の女性グループであり、日本の太鼓に共通の情熱をもって団結しています。雷鳴の鼓動、ボーカルの旋律、武道の舞台芸術の振り付けなどで、多様な観客とエンパワーメント、爽快感を共有します。フェミニストと社会正義の理念を支持するためにドラムの力を利用します。さわぎ太鼓の精神、創造性、そしてリスペクトは、ステージの上でもステージ以外でも感じられます。
